I know we all try to blame everything on our thyroid glands but I have to admit, most of my problems have disappeared since (except the weight gain).
I did another long distance flight on Monday and the next day woke up not being able to breathe ie I was really struggling for breath and there was a strange crackling sound in the upper part of my chest while I was trying to breathe. The sound was loud and could be heard by others in the room.
My daughters wanted to call an ambulance but I knew I would be okay although at the same time I thought I was having a heart attack....there was no pain however.
In the end I got an emergency appointment with my GP who listened to my heart and lungs, did an oxygen test and said all was well. This was yesterday. I am now worried that I developed a DVT and the clot had gone to my lungs. However, how come the doctor just dismissed it all once he knew everything was well with heart and lungs etc.?
Could this be another anomaly of hypothyroidism ie that I had developed an asthma attack even though I have never suffered with them. Was the asthma brought on by my thyroid problems. I have been okay eveer since but really scared also. I used to suffer badly with panic attacks and this wasnt like that. Also, if it was one in another form I dont think I can bear living my life in fear again.
